**Feature Request** Brief title for your desired feature: Lock horizontal and vertical while pressing a hotkey How would you like the feature to work? in schematic and PCB layout mode holding CNTL and dragging a piece would lock the movement into a vertical OR horizontal only movement. Basically force moving in a straight line. Why is this feature important to you? Sometimes you don't want to move freely or by the grid. You just want to move precisely to the left or down or whatever

Hi, when you holding the Ctrl or ALT key, you can move canvas vertically , when you holding SHIFT key, you can move horizontally.

@Tutorials I'm not seeing what you are seeing. Perhaps we are miscommunication. As an example: In PCB mode, I'd like to be able to drag a component left (right click drag), hold down a single key (i.e. shift) and have the software prevent the "Y Location" from changing. Also drag a component downwards, while holding the **same** key and prevent the "X Location" from changing. This can be accomplished using a single key for horizontal AND vertical by programming the software like this: This is hard to explain verbally so I drew you a picture: https://imgur.com/a/8m32i

At now, you can close the snap and use the direction key to move footprints

Using the direction arrows does not lock the unwanted direction of movement.  The component will snap to the nearest grid unit perpendicular to the desired direction of movement.

@steadystate, Tutorials' suggestion for a workaround is to turn off snap to grid before making the movement with the arrow keys, then turn snap to grid on again after completing the movement.

@andyfierman Yeah, there's a lot of that, isn't there? I'll state again that EasyEDA is a million times better than, say, Eagle, but there are still a number of small annoyances that add up...

Hi All It will be supported at the new pro version

What is the Pro version? If it is a paid-for or exclusive version, I don't see how this basic functionality qualifies as "pro".
